John Wright Follette was a man who intimately knew God. He
was a gifted Bible teacher and author, who had both
perspective and spiritual depth in his interpretation of the
Word. He was an illuminated spirit in the field of spiritual
reality, and had an unusual ability to impart âspirit and lifeâ
into those who sat under his ministry.
This gifted Huguenot poet, and deeply spiritual teacher, who
lived in New Paltz, New York traced his ancestry back to
those unconquerable people whose descendants made history,
and who arrived in the area of his birth in the 1660's.
He received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit in 1913 while a
student at a Bible School in Rochester, New York, and later
became a teacher there until the school closed. He also
taught for many years at Southern California Bible College.
During the later years of his life, he was called into a wider
field, ministering in conferences and retreats which took him
around the world. He passed into his eternal reward in 1966 at
the age of 82.
